It sunny with a chance of scorched earth as Brad Pitt returned to the role of a goofy yet depressing weatherman on Tuesday’s episode of Comedy Central’s “The Jim Jefferies Show.”
In the bit, Jefferies tossed to his weatherman when he was joking about how weather affects the NBA playoffs and LeBron James. All of the games are played indoors, which led the host to give a stink eye to his weatherman.
Pitt appeared in an oversized tan blazer and wide brown tie ad stood in front of a weather map of the world which showed it was going to be hot and sunny everywhere on the planet.
“I was hanging out with LeBron James and he said, 'How is the weather down there?' because he is tall. I said, ‘The same as it is up there! Changing at a pace never-before-seen in the history of man! Your legacy is pointless! Our people and our memories will all burn!'" Pitt deadpanned.
Appearing to get flustered by Pitt's comments, Jefferies asked for a real forecast.
"We got sunshine in the west, the south, the east, and over here in the north, the icecaps are melting and I am so, so, so, so scared," Pitt said.
At the end of the bit, Jefferies thanked the weatherman for his "forecast" and as the camera cut back to Pitt, heavy metal guitarist Kerry King of Slayer walked on set and tried to shake the "Ocean’s 11" actor’s hand.
Pitt instead looked the other way without greeting King, and Jefferies playfully screamed for King to get off the set.
It was the third time Pitt appeared as the character. The first time came when "The Jim Jefferies Show" premiered last summer. After months away from the show, he reprised the role after an apparent demand on social media by fans.
